Win A KYMCO AGILITY!
The long awaited Kymco Agility 50s are scheduled to arrive next week, hopefully before the ID6 Philadelphia Indpendence Day Scooter Rally where we're giving one away as the Grand Prize for the Midnight Rally Raffle, Saturday July 1st!
"New for 2006, the KYMCO Agility 50 is a quality built entry level scooter that is unmatched in the industry. With a smooth, quiet 4-stroke 49cc engine, front disc brake, low seat height and short wheelbase the Agility 50 creates a riding experience suited for everyone. Check out the convertable buddy seat that doubles as a rider backrest when flipped into the up position. The Agility 50 is a compact, nimble little scooter with plenty of underseat storage that would make an excellent addition to any garage." -KymcoUSA.

Kymco's lowest priced scooter, and first from the mainland China factory, we'll put the Agility through its paces to see if quality control is up to Kymco's high standards. Look for a complete real world review once the Agility arrives at our shop!

Genuine My Buddy, WOW!
Genuine Scooters definitely has another bonafide hit with the "My Buddy" scooter. Fast, nimble light... and did I mention FAST! This 125cc performs like a 150cc, with quick acceleration, sharp handling and very stable at speed. Fit finish and quality are all top notch, as PGO (once a Piaggio licensee) is manufactured in Taiwan to exact Genuine standards, and comes with a 2 year warranty.
Think of it as the twist and go version of the venerable Vespa Smallframe series. With the lower seat height and slimmer profile, the Buddy is a perfect urban commuter, with enough power to get you out of the city and into the suburbs.
Stop by and check 'em out. We have black, pink and burnt sienna 125cc in stock!

We use and recommend the VersaHaul Single Motorcycle Carrier with Ramp VH-55 RO to transport our scooters. After trying several cheaper brands, we feel the VersaHaul is the most stable and secure scooter carrier on the market. Fits any class III or IV hitch, with a carrying capacity of 500lbs, we found the VersaHaul capable of carrying scooters up to 250cc. The ramp makes loading and unloading a breeze, and the four retractable tie down bars, and anti-tilt bracket help keep your scooter safely anchored.
Take your scooter to rallys, on vacation, to the mountains or to the beach!
Give us a call at the shop, the VersaHaul can be dropped shipped to your driveway for right under $400.
